Donghai Island people

Dongdao Island, Guangdong Province, China

Donghai Island, the fifth largest island in China, has been developed into a large island of heavy industry in the past decade. Due to land expropriation and demolition and other reasons, many original residents moved away from their hometown. The traditional culture and life style of Donghai Island are facing new challenges, and the air and environment are also facing challenges. I went back to my hometown East Island childhood village to live, and used a film camera to record the friendly faces of hometown people, I want to keep them, keep a miss.
